Notes: Seastones and the beginning of the jam was patched using SHNID 90145. This show is a mono recording and unfortunatley all that is available as an aud source for this date. The sound quality is average to say the least. This recording is for completists only and was done to add an aud source into the db.

auds from this era are unbearable but this one is tolerable, great taping job..still go with the sbd..and never listen to a word coming from that guy evan hunt, he is full of sh*t always. I think he was at Woodstock, Monterey Pop, and the first acid test too. haha
I saw 4 of these 5 nights and they were all packed when I got there - what do you expect - it was their final run of shows.

Poles In The Air
Musta stood right next to Louis Falenga that night guaging the sound in the hall. I wish to thank Mr Falenga for this marvelous effort...
... suddenly, while listening, I caught the vibe of Louis standing right next to me with his poles in the air above our heads.
He was looking at me like, "Please, mister, couldn't you please shut up?"
I cooled it ~ all my sing-along. You can hear it on the the first 3-4 songs on the tape. This is quite embarrassing to yours truly. There was I bellowing along so vociferously that poor Louis was going ape-shit. So, I held back. I finally got the message. I whispered out loud:
"Sorry, Louis, I just got carried away. I cudn't hepp it."
Louis looked at me, summed me up quickly, and nodded an okay.
This show in it's presentation is an eighteen out of five stars.
This recording is better than the SBD due to resident excitement of Bobby's BD and the hometown A's World Series victory. These are essences nothing but an AUD can deliver.
Walking into Winterland that night: Walked thru the doors without even showing a ticket and down in front hardly moving an extraneous muscle ~ that's how empty was that night at curtain. Twas a late arriving crowd. Not so the next night. The next night was packed early-on.
Nun The Less, the first night, Spirited.
Yes, the levels may be a bit over-driven, but such a sweet and well-played show, the recording flaws are quickly not-is'ed. It doesn't matter.
